L:'j. $1,600.00 MYSTERIOUSLY DISAPPEARS. Dispensary Inspector Clarence L. Brown Finds large Sum Missing. A very peculiar story became known yesterday when it was discovered that a few days ago Dispensary Inspector Clarence L. Brown mysteriously lost over $1,600, which he received from a county dispenser to make up a shortage in the man's accounts. Inspector Brown went to Charleston a few days ago, according to his statement, and in the course of his duties went to the general dispensary of S. S. Matthews and checked up the books. He found the dispenser $1,648 short in his accounts and asked for payment of that amount. He was given a check, and one of Matthews' clerks went with him to the bank to get it cashed. The money was obtained at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and Inspector Brown came to UoiumDia on tne aiiernoon train. Dispenser Matthews accompanied him. Mr. Brown would make no statement concerning the reason why the dispenser came, but it is probable from what can be learned that he held that the shortage did not exist, and so came to consult with Commissioner Tatum. Mr. Brown says that he parted with Matthews at Branchville, the dispenser going to Columbia and Mr. Brown to Barnwell, his home. Arriving there he found that his bankbook, in which were the greenbacks, had disappeared. Not alone had the money which he had collected disappeared, but also abo^ut $500, some of which belonged to the dispensary. He came to Columbia the next morning and reported the loss. Inspector Brown is a bonded officer and when his friends learned of his predicament they made up the amount lacking and it was paid in to the dispensary's funds, pending further investigation. When the facts in this case were heard ? > mt. _ 01 yesterday me oiate iciegiapucu iv? Charleston correspondent and instructed him to investigate the matter. Late last night the following dispatch was re. ceived: Dispenser Matthews was seen by The State's representative this afternoon and asked for a statement about the shortage. He stated at first that he knew nothing about the matter, coupling the remark with an inquiry whether Inspector Brown had charged him with being short in his accounts. Showing no disposition to dis* cuss the matter, Dispenser Matthews was asked if he had ever been robbed?which might account for the shortage?to which he replied: "I know nothing at all about the matter." He later said that he preferred to say nothing, but when told that he would be quoted in this way, he added, "I think it best." A member of the county board of control was seen about the story and he said that while he had heard the rumor of a shortage, he could say that the board knew nothing about it officially. "The stock is regularly taken and the reports sent to Columbia," he said, "and any shortage which might occur would be discovered through the inspector's examination. If such a discovery has been made, no report of it has been received by our board." Mr. Brown could not be found until late last night and would make no statement regarding Dispenser Matthews' visit to Columbia. Commissioner Tatum was likewise taciturn. It is almost certain> however, that the dispenser came to the city to deny the shortage. He had a receipt from Mr. Brown. The story is a very peculiar one and1 will be investigated to the bottom. There have been rumors of a shortage in Charleston for some time, but it was learned last night that they could not be confirmed.? The State, Thursday, July 6th. Tom Reed in Search of a Collar. Among the prominent men of New England there was none, perhaps, who wore a larger collar than Tom Reed. One hot day in the summer of 1901, Reed was in Portsmouth, and, having to wait over for a train, he decided to make an impromptu toilet, changing his collar, etc. So he hied himself to the nearest haberdasher's and began a general survey of the collars displayed in the store. "Waited on, sir?" queried one of the clerks. "Not yet," responded Reed, and then added, "I would like a collar." "What size?" piped the clerk. "Size 20," answered Reed. "We don't keep collars so large, but I think you may be accommodated at the store just around the corner."

Mrs. Robinson's husband was absent at the time and resisting the attack her scalp was badly torn and one hand was bitten to the bone. The jury could not assess the death Density, as the deed was not accomplished, but, there being no limit as to the time he might be given in the penitentiary, the court made it ten centuries and one day over. The negro asked the court to pass sentence in order that the term might begin at once. The staff of a certain Brooklyn hospital, according to the New York Sun, has a story too good to keep. The other evening a voung man rushed in asking excitedly "for'Mrs. Brown. "Mrs. Brown? Mrs. Brown?" replied the puzzled official. "We haven't any Mrs. Brown here."

Orangeburg, July 8.?The body of Mr. Steve DeMars, who was killed by a live wire in Atlanta yesterday, was brought home this morning, and the funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon. Mr. DeMars was in the employ of the Atlanta Telephone and Telegraph company, and while at work on a pole accidentally touched a heavily charged electric wire, which caused his death instantaneously. After climbing the pole, he buckled himself to the pole to prevent falling, so that his body hung across the live wire until arrangements could be made to take it down. Mr'. DeMars was about 24 years of age and very popular in this, his home town. He was the son of the late Frank DeMars, who died last September, and is survived by his mother and the following brothers and sisters: Mr. Frank M. DeMars, Mr. J. E. DeMars, Mr. Fred L. DeMars and Miss Carrie De Mars, all of Orangeburg. Mrs. Rudolph Seigling and Mrs. H. M. Sanders, of Charleston. A Bad Break. During the annual convention of a certain religious body, not so very long ago, an incident occurred which was not on the program, and which completely upset the gravity of the ministers and brethren assembled. It was at the closing session, and the chairman stated that they were about one hundred dollars short of an amount desired to be raised for a given purpose, and hoped that the sum could be made up before final adjournment. One of the laymen jumped up with the remark: "I'll start the good work with $25." "I don't know your name, brother," said the chairman, "but may God bless you, and may your business be doubled during the year." Much to his astonishment, a burst of laughter followed from many in the hall, which was explained when a brother up in front stepped to the platform and whispered: "Why, that's Mr. Blank, a prominent undertaker of the town." G. Frank Bamberg handles the best buggies and wagons, yet the prices are reasonable. Willing to Pay for Hl8 Contempt. The following anecdote is told of Gen. Gilman Marston, a once famous New Hampshire lawyer: Gen. Marston was attending court at Dover, when a young attorney made a motion that was denied by the court. The young man remonstrated against \yhat he thought was the wrong ruling of the judge. So vehemently did he remonstrate that he was fined $10 for contempt of court. An older attorney took the matter up, and he was fined a similar sum. Still another, who thought he stood a little better with the judge, endeavered to straighten the matter out, but he too enriched the coffers of the State by paying a "ten spot" for contempt. Gen. Marston was then seen to rise in bis seat and advance tj-ward the clerk's desk. Taking his long r>ocketbook reom bis pocket he took out iwo ten dollar bills and laid them on the desk. "What is that for?" said the court. "I want you to distinctly understand," said the general, "that I have just twice as much contempt for this d court as anv man here, and I am ravine for it." DARLINGTON BANK FAILS INDEPENDENT COTTON Oil COMPANY PUT INTO HANDS OF A RECEIVER Bank Made Large loan?Difficulties of the Independent Cotton Oil Company Followed by Cosing of the Darlington Trust Company. Darlesgton, July 7.?Two unexpected occurrences startled Darlingtonians this morning and this will extend to a much wider circle when the facts are known. The first was the announcement that the doors of the Darlington Trust company were temporarily closed; the second was the statement that the affairs of the Independent Cotton Oil company had been placed in the hands of a receiver. the notice. The first intelligence was gained from the following notice, which was posted on the closed doors of the Darlington Trust company: "Owing to the financial troubles of the Independent Cotton Oil company, the directors deem it to the interests of the depositors and the stockholders of the Darlington Trust company to close the doors temporarily. The directors have examined the books of the company and assure all stockholders that they will be paid in full. "By order of the board of directors. "E. C. Lide, Cashier." the oil company. It will be seen by this notice that the Independent Oil company was involved and the news of a receiver having been appointed for this company followed soon. Your correspondent wanted only the most accurate information concerning the situation and what follows is official: Going first to Mr. Bright Williamson, president of the Independent Cotton Oil company, and one of the largest stockholders, the following statement was secured from President Williamson: mr. Williamson's statement. "Ten days ago, because of the solicitation of my friends, I accepted the posi tion of president of the Independent Oil company at a special meeting. I at once began investigations and a few days ago I found some inaccuracies which I had verified yesterday. I feared these were serious enough to place the company in the hands of a receiver, so called a director's meeting by telegraph. Seven out of nine members were present, Mr. Nachman being in Paris and Mr. Israel not ! being able to attend. After hearing my ! report these gentlemen were of the unanj imous opinion that a receiver should be appointed and today an order from Judge ! Watts appoints me to that position to take charge at once." It is impossible to get any definite statement regarding the assets and liabilities of the company. The capital stock of the Independent company was nominally $1,000,000 and the stock sold last week as high as 75 per cent, of the par value. The liabilities will approximate $500,000, so it is believed. The Independent Cotton Oil company, under the management of President R.K. Dargan, haspiad a record and reputation seldom equalled. When he took charge of the one mill upon which the organization was afterwards founded, the stock was selling at 50 cents on the dollar. Latterly the company has operated plants at Charleston, Darlington, Mullins, Kingstree, Timmonsville, Syracuse, Effingham, Wadesboro, N. C., Cheraw, Lamar, Homer, Lydia, Swift Creek, Mechanicsville,Marion,Manning,Auburn, Montclare, Davis Station, Summerton, and Packsville. These 21 plants are still under the direct control of the Independent Cotton Oil company, constituting its various branches. Mr. R. K. Dargan is president of the Darlington Trust company, which was organized April 1,1905, with authorized capital of $200,000. The Independent Cotton Oil company borrowed $80,000, so it is correctly stated, from the Trust company on demand loan. These loans were called for yesterday and could not be met, but it is authoritatively stated that depositors and stockholders of the Trust company will be paid in full and will be paid at once. Mr. Bright Williamson, receiver, has at once gone to work and says he will make an official statement in a few days, just as soon as all the necessary facts can be ascertained. He has been receiving telegrams and messages over the long distance 'phone all day from various sections sending substantial evidences of Affirl sympatuy auu The circumstances are deeply regretted by all and were freely discussed today. For several years under the management of President R. K. Dargan, the Independent grew, prospered and paid good dividends. Now stockholders ana business men unite in regretting the combination of events that has forced such an unfortunate situation and all hope for a satisfactory adjustment very soon. will pay out. ) It is confidently believed that the trust I company will at an early date pay back | dollar for dollar. Nothing definite, of course, can be learned, regarding the exact details of the oil company's affairs. Mr. Bright Williamson, receiver, has at once gone to work and with so experienced, conservative and successful a business man in charge, it is hoped that a more satisfactory statement will soon be made concerning the present business situation of this organization. A POLITE SALESMAN. How He Struck it Rich With a Shabby Looking Customer. A friend of the late- Charles Lockhart, Standard Oil magnate, relating some of the deceased millionaire's eccentricities, told the following story: Something happened to him in New York which would make a plot for a Sunday school book if the same plot hadn't happened so often in Sunday school books ' that it is getting trite. There was a new silverware and jewelry establishment struggling along in XT - -11 new turn, nui, a suuui suup, you understand, but a big concern which was not yet recognized as a leader in fashionable trade. One very hot summer afternoon a tall, sad and rather ill dressed old man entered tire shop and said he . wanted to buy a wedding present. Now, it was a hot day, and the clerks were tired and irritated and the stranger looked like a visitor from the remote fanning district with about $1.49 to spend. He passed from counter to counter pricing things. The clerks were not at all cordial. -At last, down at the end of the silverware department, he bumped into a young fellow, a new man in the shop. This clerk was trying to make good; also, to do the situation justice, he hadn't been there long enough to know the difference be tween a promising customer and an unpromising one. The old man went higher and higher in the examination of silverware. He got to pricing full sets of silver plate. After the young clerk had run through the list he said: ' "Is that the best you've got?" The young clerk remembered then that the firm had begun the manufacture of a specially designed, extra heavy set ofv plate for a rich New York family. The order had been canceled, but some of the pieces had been finished for show. He trotted out the set. mi v J ? j i. it . i i_ . # i ne oia man ngurea out on me DacK 01 an envelope every frill which could be added to a set of silver plate, shoved his list at the clerk snd asked how much it would cost. The clerk consulted the manager and answered that it would be fifty thousand and some odd dollars and cents. * "All right, have it made for me," said the old man. "How much do you want to deposit?" asked the clerk. "Oh," said the customer, "I'll pay the whole amount and get it off my mind." So he drew a check for the amount. The clerk didn't recognize the signature?he'd never heard of Charles Lockhart?so he took it to the manager and a et-o/i If tVio latter tVi/vnrrVit it txraa crr\f\A Ck<9AVU ill vuv iuuwvi uuv/w^uv i? nt*J gvv\?? ^ "Good for a thousand times $50,000,'" said the manager. Lockhart came back to that store during the Christmas season that year. The clerks knew him that time, for the $50,000 purchase had become a tradition of the store. He went past them all, though, and asked for the clerk who had sold him the silver plate. When he found his man, Lockhart bought $80,000 worth of Christmas presents. This story ends the way it ought to end for the 8unday school library. The clerk with an $80,000 customer on his string attracted the attention of the firm, and now he's a big man in the silverware business. N Final Indneement. "Speaking of that law suit of which you told us the other day, I have a story of that kind which will beat it," said the lawyer. "I had a case in a nearby parish in which a man was arrested for stealing a cow. He was held over for the grand jury on preliminary hearing and he sent for me. His letter ran something like this: "Dere Sir: I am in Jale and the man sayes I am likely to goe to the pen. I did not steel the cowe and I am purfuctly innercent. Pleese gete me out, if it are the last act of yure life. This is not a nice place. Pleese do get me out. I think I can pay you sum day. I did not Steele thes cowe. Tell the Judge that. And if you get me off free I am willing to do all I can for you. If you do I will Give you the cowe. Yours truly, Bill Smith." G.
